Chrono Trigger Review



Retro review for the beloved computer roleplaying videogame Chrono Trigger (1995) for the SNES / SFC by Square. This version is the Playstation re-release that was part of the Final Fantasy Chronicles (2001) bundle with FF4.

Chrono Trigger was created by Square's "Dream Team" division, which was led by Hironobu Sakaguchi (who created the Final Fantasy series). The game was written by scenario writers, Yuji Hori (creator of the Dragon Quest games) and Masato Kato (later directing both Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross; wrote much of Xenogears and XenoSaga I & II), and character designer Akira Toriyama (of Dr. Slump, Dragon Ball and also pretty well known for his Dragon Quest concept art). All of the game's music was composed primarily by Yasunori Mitsuda (later known for his breathtaking music in Xenogears, Crono Cross, and XenoSaga) under the watchful eye of Nobuo Uematsu (the best known Final Fantasy music composer).

As a result of this combination of legendary talent, Chrono Trigger is often regarded as one of the best games for the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom.
